Yes, we know that they look so strong, aggressive and for many people, they are ugly dogs, but we need to say that pit bulls really make wonderful family dogs, and their reputation based on their looks is quite unfair.
The media keeps on announcing that pit bulls tend to attack people, which is the case with any breed of dog.
The main reason for these unfair judgments is that pit bulls are excellent guardians and the perfect security system, so it is their instinct to attack, that is to protect their owners.
Appearance should not fool you, as these dogs really have a loving heart and are a great part of a family.
This breed is highly intelligent, strong, and very loyal, plus it is not at all aggressive when raised in a loving environment.

Let Your Pup Pick Its Name
As you have seen, so many names and it is still up to you to choose only one or two.
This task is certainly troublesome, so we have prepared some tips that people find useful when picking a name for their pit bull.
What we liked the most is that whichever of the given ways you choose, you will need to include your pup in the name-picking process.
We consider it fair as they are those who will hear that name for the rest of the life.
The first method is to call out names if you have doubts between a few names.
You can go to a room that the dog is not in and call out names.
If your dog comes to one of the names you call out, you will not have to think about it anymore.
That would be the perfect one.
Also, you can use index cards and write different names that you like on them.
Then, you can place a piece of dog food on each card and the one that your dog comes to first will be his/her name.
Furthermore, you can involve the whole family in the naming process, as they can really help.
It is not uncommon that family members have an argument being that each person may have the ideal name for a new dog.
What you can do is to form a large circle around the dog, and each family member starts calling the dog by the name they have chosen.
When the dog goes to someone, that person’s name should become the dog’s name.
You may consider it a really fun way to choose a name for your dog, but peeing on trees is a method that turned out to be effective.
This only works with male dogs who have learned to lift their leg.
You can tack a different name to each tree and let your pit bull pee on a tree with a name that will become his name.
As you could see, all the methods involve your dog and you actually let him/her pick the name.
This will save you time and energy if you have doubts about names.
To make the dog get used to the name, you should give him/her a treat each time it comes to you when called.
